Since the Trump Administration took office, one major talking point has been the need to revamp the American infrastructure system. One strategy includes grants for airports around the country, fixing taxiways and updating tunnels.

Now, more than a dozen airports in Arizona will be receiving millions of dollars in federal grants for improvements to aviation infrastructure, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

A total of 13 airports in Arizona are part of a new round of funding in the agency’s Airport Improvement Program, which started funneling money to airports across the country in the first round last year. In that first round, 17 Arizona airports were given $21 million, including improvements to Phoenix Sky Harbor, Grand Canyon West in northwest Arizona, and Marana Regional Airport in the southeast.
